The Garden and my Camera

Despite having a decent digital camera, a light tent and lighting, I cannot take a decent photograph.  It is very frustrating being unable to do my bears justice and capture their characters to my satisfaction.  I have tried adjusting white balance and adjusting a variety of settings but I am a hopeless case.  However, I hope there is some light on the horizon.  I am going on a one day portraiture photography course for beginners in two weeks time.  I really hope that my pictures will show some improvement after the course. 

With the very warm weather we've been having, flowers and blossoms are not lasting long in the garden, so I took my camera outside and took a few photos.  We have a beautiful magnolia tree, but the blossom doesn't last long.  It is looking particularly lovely this year.  Our tulips are in flower.  We don't usually see them until May.

  1. Hope you enjoy the course :o) Oh, and read the manual, it's amazing what you find in there (I'm not being facetious, I didn't read mine to start with, then I discovered all sorts of handy tips!)
